helpful or a pointless exercise? cory booker, the hero mayor of newark, the guy who runs into a burning building to save lives, invites superstorm sandy victims into his home and rushes to aid a pedestrian hit by a car. heroism so out of the norm, it's been lampooned by booker himself and new jersey governor chris christie. >> gov, sit tight. i got this. >> booker. >> governor, stand back! i got this. i got this. >> booker! >> now booker says he will honor a challenge he made to one of his million plus twitter followers to live on food stamps for a week to see how the other half lives. although it's fair to ask, as mayor of newark, doesn't he already know? the s.n.a.p. challenge, as booker calls it, means eating on just $4.32 a day. he he says he's doing to, quote, raise awareness and understanding of food insecurity, reduce the stigma of s.n.a.p. participation, and amplify compassion for individuals and communities in need of assistance. he was told by a constituent that nutrition is not a responsibility of the government. he seems to be itching to prove her wrong. he could run against

newark who has been a rising star in the political sphere for quite some time now cory booker has intimated he is looking to run for the senate race when senator frank lautenberg's term is up in 2013. i suppose it's not that big of a surprise, although some thought he might try to challenge chris christie in the gubernatorial race. >> yeah, there was some speculation that would be a powerful race there, but i think chris christie right now is pretty popular in new jersey, especially in the aftermath of his behavior following the superstorm sandy. i think cory booker has a huge future, and i think if he runs for that frank lautenberg seat from new jersey as the democratic nominee, he'll have a pretty good chance of winning. i don't know who the republican might be. that's not going to happen until 2014. so we still have some time. the gubernatorial race is next year. >> he has some big money behind him already and has had some for quite some time already. this is a guy who maybe, you know, if americans are starting to hear more about him because of his super hero, you know, busines

this statement, and i'll quote for you. lou wees sanchez was an unpaid college intern in our newark office for approximately two months. no staff member responsible for managing the internship program had reason to believe, based on the interview process, that sanchez had any criminal background or immigration issues. clearly mr. sanchez sought to deceive our staff. upon notification from authorities of his arrest, mr. sanchez's relationship with our office immediately ended. senator menendez was briefed on the situation today. and he is appalled. he has no tolerance for those who invite the law and expects the authorities to continue to prosecute the case. senator menendez believes this incident under scores the reason we need comprehensive immigration reform that provides zero tolerance for those who have criminal records. joining me on set is cnn a's legal contributor, paul cal lan. paid or unpaid, you would assume that any government office would require a background check. >> i wouldn't assume anything about the government, ashleigh. they're pretty lax in a lot of respects, and you kn
